Rebuilding Together has declared the last Saturday in April as National Rebuilding Day. On this day and over the weekend, thousands of volunteers throughout the country join together to provide critical and life-saving repairs for vulnerable families in our communities.
Rebuilding Together Austin has been working with Ms. Ockletree and her home will be the featured project for National Rebuilding Day. April 28th is also Ms. Ockletree’s birthday! Austin 1st Platoon and Rebuilding Together Austin will join forces to make her birthday one to be remembered.
Ms. Ockletree is 83, taking care of three young teens, and her spirit is contagious. Her home is in need of the repairs that RTA specializes in. Already, contractors have been completing additional projects in her home including: a new roof, installing an HVAC system and making her bathroom more safe and easily accessible.

Our primary mission is to rebuild her fence. I believe this is a great opportunity for us. We will accomplish our mission with at least two separate events, Prep day on March 31st and National Rebuild Day on April 28th.
To prepare on March 31, we will begin demolition at the Ockletree home. The following tasks will be completed:

- Removing current fencing.
- Demolition of two small sheds.
- Discarding fence material, possible sorting for reclamation.
- Debris removal.
- Prep for installation of new fencing.

Y'all, we'll be breaking stuff and cleaning up the mess. Two of a veteran's favorite things! This is going to be the therapy run before the main event on April 28th. Come on out and join us in service to Ms. Ockletree!
